Gameboy emulator comes to Android Wear because a watch needs those sort of things

AndroidWearGameboyI know that after I got my Moto 360 I was thinking to myself, man I would love to play Pokemon Red, or Mario on that thing. Given its small size, it would do wonders to bring back the glory days of me squinting at a tiny screen in an effort to beat whichever game I was playing. Well it looks like I, and anyone else with an Android Wear watch, will be able to do just that.

Facebook slaps its stickers into comments for all users

facebook_stickers_in_comments

Facebook is about to get a lot stickier starting today. The social media network is unpackaging its stickers for the comments of a post. If you have never seen or even heard of Facebook’s stickers, just think of them as massive emojis with much more personality. Some stickers are fun and creative while others are absolutely bizarre.

This is the third major addition to the comments section since mid-2013. In May of that year, Facebook launched emoji support. Then, the comments section was covered in photographs the following month. Now there are stickers. All users will have access to stickers in comments within the next day.

Do you plan on using stickers often? Let us know in the comments (without stickers, please).

Iliad moving on after T-Mobile declines acquisition offer

iliad_logo

In July, French telecommunications giant Iliad expressed interest to purchase a majority stake in T-Mobile. The offer at that time was roughly $15 billion for 56.6%. Recently, Iliad upped that number to take 67% at $36 per share. It was going all-in to get its foot into the United States wireless industry.

It all comes to an end today because T-Mobile’s parent, Deutsche Telekom, has “refused” to entertain the new offer. Iliad has announced its pursuit of T-Mobile is over and will move on. In somewhat of a jab at Deutsche Telekom and T-Mobile, Iliad said in a press release that it will “continue its profitable growth policy as it has been conducted over the last 15 years in the interest of subscribers, employees and shareholders.”

This means that the door is still open for SoftBank to hop in and merge Sprint with T-Mobile.
